Tempt your tastebuds with the flavours of WA
The annual Food and Wine Festival has a new name and a new home. Previously known as the York Gourmet Food & Wine Festival and held in the York Town Hall, organisers were keen to expand the event in order to showcase even more WA products. This year the event will be renamed as the Avon Valley Gourmet Food and Wine Festival and will be held in the Northam Recreation Centre.
There is lots to see and do at the Avon Valley Gourmet Food and Wine Festival, something for everyone. Enjoy the food tastings, wine and spirits tastings, cooking demonstrations, market style stalls and much, much more.
You can sample some of the best produce WA has to offer. There will be over sixty gourmet food stalls, all jam-packed with tasty morsels, including wines, chili, yabbies, cheeses, jams, Pickles, exotic spices, sauces, nuts and chocolate.
There are plenty of free activities to keep the kids happy and entertained too. Why not visit the cuddly animal farm, have fun on the rides or have a Clydesdale ride?
For the adults there is a fully licenced bar and a relaxing chill out zone.
One of the highlights of this year's Gourmet Food and Wine Festival will be the live cooking demonstrations. Back by popular demand, chef Don Hancey will be cooking up a storm, so don't miss out on this.
Tickets for the Avon Valley Gourmet Food and Wine Festival 2013 will be $18.00 per person for a weekend pass, $10.00 for adult and children under the age of twelve, if accompanied by an adult, will be admitted free. Most things are included in this price but there are some small charges for high end tastings or children's rides. Tickets are available on-line from the Avon Events and Marketing website.
The Festival, Long Table, Degustation Dinner.
On Saturday 1st June, 2013 a Long Table Degustation Dinner will be held. Herb Faust, Australian Iron Chef Winner, will create a unique five course meal for you to enjoy. This is a truly unmissable dining experience.
Seating for this event is limited and will sell out fast so book early. Tickets for this Long Table Dinner will cost $155.00 per person and are available on-line.
Sorry but this should be a free event, such as tastings in Margaret River, very disappointing, would probably have spent more than double that on produce but with Wife us 3 kids (14,15,16) just not worth it :(
